It’s been a tough day in the monkey cage and something in the food tonight wasn’t quite right. In the monkey world, there’s only one thing that can be done about it - fling poo!!
It doesn’t matter who started it in this fast and furious game of monkey see, monkey poo. It only matters who’s got what it takes to stay the cleanest the longest and become the king of the cage!
Poo! is a fast-paced “take that” style card game in which players take turns flinging handfuls of mess at each other while doing their best to stay clean!
Setup is super simple it’s just a matter of shuffling all the Poo! cards (minus the golden banana cards), deal 5 to each player, place the poo deck within reach of all the players and you are good to go! The youngest player always starts off proceedings!
Players have two options on their turn either playing a card from their hand or discarding any number of cards and drawing back up to five.
There are 5 types of cards available to players,
- Poo Cards / Special Poo - Perfect for flinging at other players!
- Defense Cards - Best way to dodge or redirect poo!
- Mishap Cards - Something bad for the monkey flinging poo at you!
- Clean Cards - Feeling a bit smelly? Wash some poo off!
- Event Cards - Feeling safe? Event cards will fix that!
Along with some cracking artwork each card in Poo! has very clear instructions on how they play. Not all cards are played during your turn, some you can play as a reaction to incoming poo, and if you are tired of your people dodging or blocking your poo worry not little monkey, some cards are unstoppable!!
If you are hit by flying poo make note of how many poo your take, if you reach 15 poo total you’ve had enough and are out! First one out for the round? Feel like other players were picking on you? Revenge is at hand as the first out claims the golden banana card and is back in the game, but they start with 8 poo on them already!
To be crowned the winner you just need to be the last monkey standing!! Once the poo starts flying it may be easier said than done!
Poo! is a 2-8 player game, more players the better in our experience as a target-rich environment is always much more fun! Games can last 10-20 mins, though if there are some stubborn monkeys it can last a little longer. Poo! simple rules and clear card instructions make it easy for players 8+ to pick up and play..
We have played more games of Poo! than I can recall, the fast-paced gameplay makes it a regular warm-up at our games nights. Easy enough to play while catching up with someone but also strategic enough to have you planning out your turns.
You will not find one game of Poo! is ever enough, as there is always revenge to be had and victory to be secured!!
We have introduced Poo! to a lot of people as its basic rules and concise card instructions mean that anyone can pick it up and get flinging. It is also a fun easy step away from the classic games moving towards other modern games, and we are all about expanding peoples gaming horizons!
Despite its name it Poo! is very family-friendly as the cards and art are humorous but not crass, the kids will love it and it will tickle most adults.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a handful and fling it at a loved one!
